Charlie Sheen will return to acting in new sitcom -Anger Management-
The star will appear in a TV adaption loosely based on the 2003 comedy film of the same name - which starred Jack Nicholson and Adam Sandler - about a businessman who is sent to counselling classes chaired by an aggressive therapist.
The 46-year-old actor said in a statement: "I chose `Anger Management` because, while it might be a big stretch for me to play a guy with serious anger management issues, I think it is a great concept."
Charlie`s character will be "a mild-mannered, non-confrontational" man who ends up in sessions with an analyst "who could probably use some anger management himself," according to the statement.
The new show is Charlie`s first acting project since he was fired from `Two and a Half Men` earlier this year after questions over conduct in his personal life turned into a public argument with the show`s creator, Chuck Lorre.
`Anger Management` will instead team the star with producer Joe Roth, whom he worked with on some of the biggest films of his career including `Major League`, `Young Guns` and `The Three Musketeers`.
`Two and a Half Men` will continue without Charlie - who was at one time the highest paid TV star in America - with Ashton Kutcher as the show`s new lead.
A start date for `Anger Management` has yet to be announced.
